Classes are organised as "vertical studios" where international students meet local students of all years of study and work together. Principles of architectural design are studied and practised on a wide range of building structures: new developments as well as urban renewal and reconstruction. Studios at this level are enriched by studios focusing on topics such as sustainable design, contemporary technologies, interior architecture and preservation. Students are offered a choice of semester assignments either for individual or group elaboration. Advanced urban design studio works on a development and/or urban regeneration project for a part of a town or a city. Students are required to work out an urban analysis (survey), draft programmes in variants and decide on a final urban design. Most studio assignments have real clients from the planning departments of municipalities.
